All in a week of uni.

I'm not really in the mood to write. I have nothing much to say. But here's a quick one with some pictures I've had lying around on my SD card.

I now only go to uni thrice a week, with work, martial arts, and social activities in between. The following illustrates how my style changes within those three days. Yes, I am usually overdressed for uni. Except for when I'm having a hobo day.

Tuesday: channelling the whole pretty/college girl vibe. Backpack, summery dress and all. All that was missing was the bike. And let's face it, that was never gonna happen. I don't do bikes.

Dress: Rastars (purchased in Vietnam); Jacket: Supre; Belt: Zahara; Shoes: Kmart; Backpack: Bluebird (from Strandbags); Cuff: Rubi.

Wednesday: Pretty pastels/neutrals and a colour pop lip. FYI it was not as warm as I'd hoped/had been forecast that day, so I was left having to try and convince myself that it was. It didn't really work too well. 

Top: Ally; Shorts: Glassons; Jacket: Sweetacacia; Shoes: Rubi; Bag: Zara; Necklace: Forever New; Cuffs: Colette by Colette Hayman.

Thursday: was meant to be sporty luxe a-la-Shakuhacki. However as I was heading to uni I had to swap the Strappy peeptoe heels I originally wanted to wear with this outfit for thongs. Less luxe, more hobo. At least for once I felt like I actually fit in at the sports/health science campus that I go to. 

Top: Paper Heart; Pants: Bardot; Thongs: Havaianas; Necklace: Diva

Are you going to a fancy dress party?

This morning my brother in law looked at me as I was on my way out (to the park to spend the beautiful day we had today in the sun) and asked, 'Are you going to a fancy dress party?'

I squinted at him, as he continued to tease me.

'What are you dressed up as?' he prodded. I continued refusing to acknowledge what he was saying. He continued, 'A crazy person??'

Sigh. I don't care if I'm dressed strangely, I like it.

I finally got to wear out my new bird- print side seam stockings from Sportsgirl. Unfortunately they didn't make it through the day, and I got teased some more, this time about my holey legwear.

Top: Mink; Shorts: Paper Scissors; Stockings & Bag: Sportsgirl; Shoes: Vinnies; Hat: Equip; Ring (right hand): Colette by Colette Hayman; Rings (left hand): Lovisa

August a really busy month for me - with loads of birthdays (including my own - which is kind of s big deal to me lol!) and other events, some happy and some, not so happy. So you'll have to bear with me - I haven't really had all too much spare time to write as of late.

I have however been snapping a few outfits that I've worn in the last few weeks, so hang tight, there's a backlog of photos/blogs coming!

Today's post is just a quick one unfortunately - I'm on my way out to enjoy the glorious sunshine about today. I'm glad that the weather's finally starting to warm up (albeit pretty slowly, and with random relapses) - can't wait to start wearing pretty dresses and shorts again. Actually, I've sort of already started that, but what I mean is I can't wait to be wearing them regularly haha.

This, my loves, is what I looked like yesterday:

Alex the day before had said he'd missed seeing me in pretty, short, floral sun dresses and suggested I wear one on the following day, since the weather had been so nice & fine. I woke up with the intention of doing so - but then I saw the teal blue felt hat that I'd bought last week, and the sheer blush maxi and blue, green & gold wedges I'd bought the day before (all absolute bargains btw - cost me $40 for all three items!), and it all spiralled into one of my omg-people-are-gonna-look-at-me-like-I'm-crazy-but-I-don't-care outfits. I was in the mood to stand out a little, and I needed an excuse to show off all my pretty new purchases:

Dress: Cotton On (slip worn underneath); Hat: Equip; Shoes: Boston Babe from Wanted; Belt: Portmans; Necklace: Lovisa; Cuffs: Colette by Colette Hayman; Bag: Zara; (Ring was a gift).  

As predicted Alex did not approve. I got a lot of funny looks and I'm pretty sure a group of ladies laughed at me after they walked past at the shops, but meh - what's the fun in being boring? I'll take the weird looks and giggles any day. Okay, so maybe not today - I'm wearing a pretty floral sun dress and sandals, lol.
